You will also hear a pop at turn-on. This is what was explained by Nick at Leckerton ...
"This is due to the sudden presence of DC at the output, followed by the nulling of the servo. I would recommend plugging in the headphones only the amp has been switched on and given a few seconds to settle."
Anyways, none of these matters to me with that transparent sounding from this setup. Simply amazing to my ears. I will never go back to diymods with caps. For my curiosity and comparison, I also tried capless diymods modded both ways (the imod way and the direct-out way), and both capless sound excellent (black background, spacious, dynamic, airy and effortless) with the capless direct-out diymod sounding even more cleaner with flat FR to my ears. This is not surprising because the board is completely bypassed from the dac with the LOD pins lifted off board. This is as close as you can get a clean line out for a diymod.
Oh, get that amp wallet if you can. While it doesn't attract girl's attention, it does do the job making the stack highly portable. It also protects your gear. Mine has been dropped accidentally to the floor from table a few times without any issues.
